My first husband and I have been making this fudge every since we were married, for 30 years. It is really good and creamy. Give it a try, you will enjoy it.

Ingredients

3 c
sugar
2/3 c
cocoa powder, unsweetened
1/8 tsp
salt
1 1/2 c
milk
1/4 c
butter, melted
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
black walnuts, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Line a 8-9" square pan with foil. Or a plate that has been buttered.
2
In a large heavy sauce pan stir in sugar, cocoa powder and 1/8 tsp of salt. Mix well. Gently stir in milk with a wooden spoon (make sure it is a wooden spoon).
3
Cook over medium heat stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a full rolling boil.
4
Boil without stirring until balls of candy can be dropped in cold water forming a ball that can be picked up by fingers.
5
Remove from heat, add butter and vanilla. Do not stir.
6
Cool at room temperature, this could take up to 2 hours or more. Do not stir.
7
Beat in Walnuts if preferred. Beat fudge with wooden spoon until candy thickens and looses some of it's gloss. This can take up to 15-20 minutes.
8
Quickly spread into prepared pan or plate. Cool.
9
Cut into squares. Can use a warm knife that has been dipped into hot water and dried off to cut easier.
10
Wrap loosley in foil and place in fridge. I did not place my candy in the fridge, just sat it on the counter and it was fine.
